Many students get stumped when it’s time to write. After creating verbal add-on stories, we will discuss some of the most vital elements of a story or novel. We will also talk about how important it is to be specific when writing. Students will revise and improve several very general sentences by using more descriptive verbs and nouns. Then students will have a chance to write and share colorful, specific paragraphs from their own stories. Please note: this workshop helps students work on skills they need to succeed on state writing assessments.

Polly Holyoke is the author of The Neptune Trilogy, a series of three dystopian novels about genetically engineered teens who live in the sea and must combat the effects of climate change. The first in the series, The Neptune Project, was published in 2013 and was named a Bluebonnet book soon after.
